Duality in <i>Piers Plowman</i> and the Anglo-Saxon Riddles (A Response to Arthus Versluis).

Duality in Piers Plowman and the Anglo-Saxon Riddles (A Response to Arthus Versluis).

The paradoxical nature of Christian numerology, in which a number (and hence letter) may carry both positive and negative connotations of the kind Versluis (no. 57) expounds for PPl’s riddling prophecies should perhaps be considered in the context of the dual, ambivalent and/or contradictory character of the Anglo-Saxon world view, especially as seen in the Exeter Book riddles.
